Grace Bay is one of the top ten beaches in the world, and this should not be surprising. The sand is fine and white, the sea is turquoise, the waves are small (sheltered by the offshore reef), the crowds are few.

Resorts occupy much of the beach with dedicated chairs and umbrellas, but even with that there is plenty of space for other people. And if you aren't with a resort you can usually pick a sport, or rent chairs and umbrellas for the say. And the resorts don't dominate the skyline like they do elsewhere. They also don't play music or other noise to disturb the quiet. There are lots of different access points, so just pick a spot

I had read that Grace Bay is rated as perhaps the best beach in the world, and it fully lived up to that billing. Breathtakingly beautiful. The white sand is so soft it feels like powder. The water is super clear, stunningly turquoise blue, and gently warm. The reefs that run along a way out from the beach must break the waves – no waves crash on the beach, it’s just gentle surf licking the sand. There is absolutely no undertow. It is perfect for swimming. We swam, and swam, and swam. We’re from Colorado, so my kids have no natural sense of the dangers that accompany waves. I usually am very cautious and worried with them around the ocean. But, this water was so gentle, I felt very comfortable with them swimming and playing. We spent the most idyllic days on this beach that truly is a wonder of God’s creation.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is consistently rated near the top. Once you're there you'll see why. But you better hurry! There are new resorts being built and it's starting to get crowded there. When we first visited in 2006 you could walk along the beach maybe with a few other folks. Now it's completely different. Because of great reviews here on trip advisor and social media and travel agencies it's become very popular. We were afraid of this when we first went there. We knew this gem would soon get found out. We just visited again in Feb 2019 and Jan. 2020 and were surprised at the number of people now on the beach. It didn't ruin it for us but maybe consider visiting in off-season. Oh and one more thing- the Provo airport is small and they need to build a bigger one that can accomodate all of the increased traffic. I would not again plan a weekend arrival/departure, it's absolutely insane. You will be standing waiting for your plane if you do.

Grace bay beach as well as the whole Providenciales area is highly over rated in our opinion. We visited many Caribbean islands and for the price of holidays in Provo you can find much better value, beach and location elsewhere. Staff in many resorts were highly reserved, very boring, quiet vibe of the entire area aimed to attract elderly crowd. Beach is always super windy and nothing special compared to neighboring islands with much nicer resorts, services and a fraction of the Provo cost. Would not return unless they start to match their prices according to their true value. Visited January 2020

Grace bay beach is easily accessible with a dedicated parking area. Very clean blue and serene ocean. Many hotels are located around this beach, however it never seemed over crowded. We went parasailing ( the guy who set up our beach chair recommmeded the tour company) and saw a giant sting ray. On the way back from parasailing two dolphins followed our boat and made our day by jumping a few times. Overall we had a great experience.

I love beautiful beaches and have seen many.
Trunk Bay (St John’s USVI), Shoal Bay (Anguilla), Pink Sand Beach (Bahamas)
, Tulum Beach (Mexico), North Beach (Isla Mujeres), Maroma Beach (Secrets. Costa Maya), Paradise (Mykonos), Camps Bay (Capetown), Bora Bora Lagoon (St. Regis Hotel), Palm Beach (N of Sydney, Australia)
Grayton Beach (FL. Panhandle)!!!
Among all those jewels, I personally consider Grace Bay to be the most awesome!

It half moon type shape is beautiful, it’s shades of water colors breathtaking, its calm perfect for swimming, the character changes along its 8 + mile length wonderful...it just offers so many superlatives!

The several hour walk I did one day along its 8 mile length is unforgettable.

God willing, I’ll be able relive it again...and again.

Grace Bay is an absolutely idyllic setting. Golden sand edging crystal clear blue water with gently lapping waves - it's what postcards were made for. Not suitable for surfing or highly active watersports, but for a gentle relaxing day enjoying oneself, it's hard to find a better place. Enjoy!

Softest most beautiful white sand coupled with so many shades of turquoise water makes this beach spectacular. Miles of shoreline are perfect for walking, running, shelling or just gazing. Calm waters and light breezes soothe the soul. Nice balance of available hotels, restaurants and activities with just sitting and enjoying the view. Highly recommend!

Grace Bay Beach, in my opinion, is one of the top two beaches in all of Caribbean. Sand is powdered sugar soft; water is warm, clear and calm; and it stretches for miles. There’s a reason Grace Bay Beach is usually ranked in the top 5 beaches in the world. And it lives up to the hype.

Very good snorkeling. As soon as you get in the water, you see fish. They have buoys all around the protected reef. About 50 feet past the buoys on the right side is where the turtles are. I saw 4 turtles together by the grassy area. Also right outside the end of the buoys I saw a stingray and 2 spotted rays swimming together. There are may different types of fish but the coral is not as vibrant as other areas I have visited.

Be advised that there are wind gusts in the TCI so the water is always choppy. I would not recommend diving later in the day. Also, I snorkel with a Body Glove vest for extra buoyancy and recommend this. It makes snorkeling very easy.
